Born and raised in Germany, Katharina was surrounded by passionate bakers since childhood. In adulthood she decided to pursue her passion, studying pastry at Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta before beginning her career with an internship turned decorator position under Chef Bronwen Weber at Frosted Art Bakery in Dallas, TX.

She has since moved back to the Atlanta and worked at or managed various cake shops, restaurants and bakeries in the area. In early 2014 she focused her attention on Pretty Cake Machine (http://aprettycakemachine.com), a website dedicated to making pastry techniques fun and accessible for home and experienced bakers alike. In its first year, Pretty Cake Machine has received spotlights on websites such as Hello Giggles, PopHangover, Thrillist, The Daily Dot and more. In addition to managing the site, Katharina provides pastries and decorated cakes for Espresso Place in Marietta, GA.
